Yangon Sights and Sounds – Chinatown

We arrived late at night in Yangon and we had the next whole day in Yangon to explore until we took the plan the following day very early in the morning to Bagan. We found that Yangon is comprised of several ethnic areas including a chinatown. While taking video of the sights and sounds, we noticed three men working to try to start what looked to be a leaf blower. But since it was a street congested with people and street markets it was puzzling how they could blow leaves. We found out quickly that this device was actually a fumigation machine and they were set to gas the sewers to kill some sort of critters. However, as the street filled up with the gas, many others got the experience too.
